Marble Technique / Dreams

This card was made for todays TLC Challenge on SCS

Ive had to post 2 seperate posts today, my other is below, and shows how to use the crackle paint, and dabbers again.

Well on this card I did want to keep it pretty simple so you could see how my dp turned out. Im very pleased with the colors and the way it turned out :)
I did use: the lid to a box,su refills,perfect pearls,rocks,brushes!!! The sentiment is from The Greeting Farm!!! You can view all Maries wonderful stamps HERE :)


Well we were to use marbles, but I dont have any that I could find. LOL so I went through some of my many drawers in my craft room, and look what I found, hmmmm I thought would these work????LOL Yeppers they sure did...lol


In the first pic I mixed wild wasabi, and I think it was lavender lace. Although Im sure it wont matter since the green over powered the lavender.

In this second picture I used both lavenders but did them seperate and didnt mix them.

I finished rolling the rocks around :) sounds funny but love the results from this technique!!


Last I decided to add perfect pearls to this, and just added them to certain areas not the entire piece...lol

Thank you for looking and I hope you enjoyed this :) I know I did enjoy this technique, and if you are wanting to join in on this challenge please follow the link above :)
Thank you for looking and have a wonderful day!!! Also you can view my other post below for today as well if you like:)

Hugs,
Chery

This is everything Ive used today. Perfect pearls can be found here at Pez-A-Doodle Designs

This is certainly a lovely technique...I used to do it with my Grade 1's (5 year olds)...until I discovered the benefits to making my card interesting!
